    Ok, I know alot of you... most of you... do not really like the idea of water cooling--at least from what I've read. And quite frankly it sounds pretty iffy to me, I mean, water and electronics??
    But suppose, hypothetically speaking of course, that I wanted to water cool this new computer I'm building...what exactly will I need? Do I need a special case for the sizing requirements? What equipment will I need to accomplish this? And most importantly what steps can I take (other than not using it ;) ) to keep from frying my system due to a water leakage?

    Thanks!

    Here is a site that has some different setups.

    I don't really know anything about the water cooling systems. How much cooler do they make the cpu than a good heatsink and fan? Like you said also about leaks, how good are they, how long will they last. It sounds like they could be more problem than good.

    I know there are people on here that have them and they could probably tell you how theirs have been.
